U.S. Navy Blue Foul Weather Helmet, WWII
This is a World War II era (1939-1945) United States Navy foul weather helmet. It is made from dark blue cloth and features the U.S.N. acronym on the back neck guard. The interior is lined in black fleece. The helmet lacks the visor used on later examples and includes two straps on the back to facilitate the wear of goggles. These helmets were worn by Navy and Coast Guard personnel on deck in inclement weather.
